Set up cartridges are the starter cartridges that are included with a brand new printer and are used to set up the printer for the first time. Most set up cartridges include less ink or toner than any standard cartridge you would find online or in a store, so they will print less pages. If your printer comes with a set up cartridge, it will likely read "set up cartridge" or "starter cartridge" on the cartridge label. Page yield information for set up cartridges typically can be found on the printer manufacturers website.
